US: 8 CHARGED IN $350 MILLION ‘FAKE AIRPORT’ AIRCRAFT REGISTRATION DRUG CASE

On 1 March, OCCRP reported that a federal grand jury in Texas has indicted 8 alleged members of a conspiracy to illegally register thousands of aircraft at an entirely fictional airport, some of which were later used by international narco-trafficking groups to smuggle drugs into the US.  It is claimed that these illegally-registered aircrafts were subsequently used by organized criminals from Colombia, Venezuela, Ecuador, Belize, Honduras, Guatemala and Mexico, to smuggle multi-ton quantities of cocaine into the US.
